Galactorrhea in 15 year old adolescent female: A case report.

A pituitary adenoma is a rare and benign pituitary tumor observed in early childhood. Prolactinoma is the most common subtype of pituitary adenomas in older children and adolescents. Patients usually present with oligomenorrhea/amenorrhea. Laboratory investigations and radiological imaging are important in confirming the diagnosis of pituitary adenomas. Administration of cabergoline is recommended as first-line therapy, although refractory cases require surgical treatment. We report the case of a female adolescent with galactorrhea and an atypical presentation of a pituitary adenoma.
